Ronald F. Dick of Newport, RI and founder of Belgravia Imports passed away peacefully on April 26, 2016.

Ronnie along with his wife Lilly Dick, started Belgravia Imports in 1987 with a mission to bring to the US consumer the best in category of organic and all natural, gourmet and specialty foods. Sourcing foods primarily from the UK and the continent, they vowed from the beginning only to accept and represent products that excelled in quality, taste and presentation.  Ronnie took great pleasure in getting to know Belgravia’s vendors, visiting their production facilities, and always sharing their passion for exceptional food. He enjoyed immensely forming relationships with our trade partners, casting an every wider net of valued trading partnerships across the USA. He looked forward to coming to work every day and retired only when health challenges intervened. He remained involved and supportive until the very end. Ronnie was a true gentleman and will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

In honor and in memory of Ronnie, the office and warehouse of Belgravia Imports will be closed Wednesday, August 10, 2016.
